I am a new to Montessori person, and I will admit that not every classroom can be ‘Montessori’, but for some (especially my special needs students) the hands-on lessons and strategies are super effective and concrete. And the counting beads are a MUST for any young classroom.
I created this collection to be an affordable solution to a full Montessori bead board collection. I will admit it takes a lot of time and prep, but the end result is worth it.
This collection includes cut-outs for beads 1-10 and also includes skip counting cards for 2-10s.
By purchasing this product you will get hands on manipulatives; and be equipped to teach early quantity concepts, skip counting, multiplication, addition, tens and ones, the list can go on and on.
The beads can be used across multiple grade levels for various activities. For a special education room its great, for a preschool, for a kindergarten, and even up to 3rd grade. They are so versatile, and now affordable!
